111  Re: Bird Shrine in Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: August 14, 2014 06:43:58 AM
I really love my shrine, Cackle!! Here are some pictures I took of the cards the night I got home with it:

I can take some nicer ones outside over the weekend when there is daylight if you would like Smiley I don't have a light box for taking pictures, so that is my preferred method usually.

I picked up my shrine from Cackle today and got to enjoy some amazing Earl Grey while we chatted this afternoon. She made me an amazing (interactive) bird-themed shrine! I've been learning about birds and doing some amateur backyard bird watching since my husband and I bought our house in April, so I love everything with birds lately!

The star of this shrine was a little guy that I admired on another project that Cackle did (and I pinned Grin). (I think he is a blue tit, but I've not seen one in person before). I love all the little twigs she added. They add a touch of organic to the very orderly feel of the shrine. And how about that crown of twigs on the top?!:

She needle-felted the teeny little eggs that this fellow is guarding <3:

There is a lovely pair of "framed" bird/plant hangings on the sides of the shrine. And time for a little confession: I love velvet ribbon - this shrine has it all over! I think the bows above the frames are the sweetest thing ever:

And I completely missed that the knob on the front was for a proper drawer!! (I'll blame it on sleep-deprivation Wink) I was instructed to open it, and I discovered some more birds on some amazingly assembled "tags":

I've actually taken photos of some of these guys in my back yard Smiley

And in case everyone was not aware, Cackle has some of the most beautiful lettering!!

I love my new bird shrine! Thanks so much Cackle! You were an amazing partner. And thanks a ton Smeddley for organizing Cheesy

Here are the last pieces of my puzzle for this swap! I really love these two from seeuudee.

And here are my completed pieces from this swap all together:

I've got half a puzzle to go, but I'm doing some private swaps with other Craftster folks, and some local friends Smiley

Thanks everyone!

I've got a few sets to show off because I've been slacking on loading photos lately.

Here is a lovely pair from rscowtown with a coneflower and a goldfinch:

And then an eastern bluebird and a tiger lily from GoldenSunshine:

And finally a northern cardinal and a wooly fern from artmomto 5:

Thanks so much everyone! I'm so excited to see my puzzle almost half done Cheesy

Here are some new squares I did on my vacation earlier this month. There is a second tufted titmouse, but this one is in a birdhouse. I didn't actually finish the cardinal. She is just missing her eye, and I need to wash out the marker. I still haven't started anything for my borders.

And here are the photos they are based on:

116  Whimsical Fairy Toad House (from a Mountain Dew Bottle!) in Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: July 17, 2014 10:41:02 AM
I built this toadhouse for Ludi in the Woodland Creature and Enchanted Forest Swap. I hope that one day a toad actually inhabits it Smiley If not a toad, than hopefully a fairy will find it cozy enough.

The house started out as a 2 liter Mountain Dew bottle. I glued small polished rocks to it with E6000 because hot glue would not hold the polished rocks on. After that I used sanded grout to fill in the gaps:

That was the only progress I photographed... Afterwards I used hot glue to secure smoker wood chips for the roof. In this case the E6000 didn't dry fast enough and I couldn't get the bottle at a good angle to keep the shingles from sliding while drying. I added moss, feathers, and little acorn lamps as additional details to finish it off. And a little birdy friend for the toad.

I also sent a fence and flower pot for the toad's "yard":

This was so much fun to make. There was just a ton of drying time between gluing on rocks and shingles and then grouting the rocks.

117  Wet-felted and Needle-felted Hanging Flower Pod Birdhouse in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: July 17, 2014 10:29:56 AM
This little felting project was for Ludi in the Woodland Creature and Enchanted Forest Swap. She had a couple of neat wet-felted birdhouses on her Pinterest, and I haven't done much wet-felting, so I thought I would at least give it a try. This is the first time I have wet-felted anything other than little balls for felted acorns. The hollow base part was wet felted around a balloon based on several tutorials I read. The swirly pattern was needle-felted onto the base and the rest of the decorations on the base were sewn by hand. The petals are a combination of needle- and wet-felting, as is the "stem" for tying it off to a tree. I'm definitely interested in trying this again. It took me forever, but I think I started getting the hang of it.

I received my first finished pieces today. These ones are from whatthepuck. My puzzle theme is North Carolina Birds and Plants. She illustrated a tufted titmouse and white aster. The tufted titmouse is one of my favorite backyard birds Smiley We have some that nested in our yard this year.

119  Alchemic Shrine in Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: July 11, 2014 06:02:56 AM
I made this little shrine for the Shrine Swap last year and just never got around to posting it. The base is a circular candy tin from Trader Joe's that has a nifty little window in it. I thought it was the coolest ever because you can close the shrine and still peak in. The shrine itself was pretty simple because I spent most of my time on a larger one. See my other shrine from this swap way back here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=425051.msg5058856#msg5058856

Sorry for the long delay posting my wonderful package from Ludi. I was out of the country all of last week and just got back in last night. Ludi is so very talented, and I'm quite blown away!

She sent me a terrific autumnal gnome with amazingly detailed stitches. I've been eyeing several other gnomes she's made, so it is so exciting to have my own!

I also scored an adorable hedgehog twinchie stitching with a brooch back:

And a teeny nature shrine with lovely mushrooms and an adorable snail!

And the best for last! She made me this amazing fox portrait! The stitches are just so amazing, I can't get over this piece of art:

Look at that cunning face!

Thank you so much, Ludi! You were an amazing swap partner Cheesy
